    Re: Lead testing in bourbon, step by step

    Just as an FYI, I have a few more samples being sent to me and have hopes to analyze them on Friday the 10th of January. If anyone has anything they would like to have analyzed it would be helpful to have them in the lab by then. As I am treating this as "research" the powers that be at my lab have allowed me to do the testing free of monetary charge, the only "fee" is a bit of extra sample to "test".

    Exactly, I dont see how anyone can drink that much water. I have heard rummors but I dont believe it. Besides, do you know what fish do int that stuff?

    Re: Lead testing in bourbon, step by step

    This is really great information. I just wish a few more recent samples (and old samples in glass) were added so we can gauge the differences. So far, it looks like only a few real stinkers in the group.

    It is very good whiskey. I think I blew through half of the contents when I first acquired it.

    On a side note, the Royal Doulton decanter it came in fetched around $90 as an empty on eBay. The filled decanter itself cost about $130 at an estate sale 6 years ago. Nice price for pleasurable lead poisoning.

    Would old school glass bottles have some risk as well?

    As far as I know if you add lead to glass the product is considered "crystal". I don't know that lead was regularly added during the production of standard daily glassware or containers.
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.
